Update #6

almost 3 years ago

Today Jim starts his chemotherapy infusions. If you are inclined to do so, please send up a prayer or two asking that the drugs they're using attack the cancer cells with abandon and that they do their job quickly and with as little stress on the rest of Jim's body as possible. Please also keep Regina and the girls in your thoughts and prayers as this is going to be tough on them as well. #holdfast

More Info

Jim Brown is just beginning his journey with cancer, and although he has a great support system and insurance, there are always things that crop up that can quickly deplete a family's savings. 

All money collected through this fund and solicited by the Hold Fast stickers/campaign will go toward supporting Jim and his family. 

If he needs to go to the east coast, he can tap into these funds. If he has to travel back and forth to Seattle multiple times in a month, he can fill the gas tank. If he really needs to see his mother or brother, he can fly them out or he can go to them. 

Jim is a hero to just about everyone he meets. This is one way we can pay him back.

Dad - husband - son - brother - friend - fire fighter - coach - mentor - HERO ...

Thank you for your donation.

Update #5

Hello everyone, and thank you once again for your generous support of the Brown family. We have more than doubled our original goal of $5000, and yesterday topped $12,000 that Jim can use to help pay for travel to and from treatment as well as the countless other things that can deplete a cancer patient's bank account.

We understand that not everyone has their hands on a Hold Fast Sticker yet. We have printed off over 3000 of them, and have distributed them to key people in Washington and elsewhere. We are trying very hard not to burden anyone with having to mail out one or two stickers at a time. Most of the folks who got the big batches also contributed to the original print and shipping expenses.

Jim is still awaiting the results of the tests he had done last Friday. Once the docs give him the go ahead, he will begin treatment. Please watch the Hold Fast Face Book page (Hold Fast for Jim Brown) to see how you might be able to pitch in during that time.

Update #4

We have topped through the $10,000 mark. Can we just take a moment to breathe and say Thank You to everyone who has contributed to help support the Browns. We will continue to keep this page open for financial contributions, but we would like to encourage people to check out the Hold Fast for Jim Brown Facebook page. After Jim begins his treatment next week, we will use that space to keep people informed of other, more immediate, needs the family may have - transportation, meals, yard work, etc. Chemo can take it out of a person, and the more we are able to free up Regina, the more she can concentrate on Jim. Thank you again for your generosity.

Update #3

Once again, we'd like to thank everyone for your support of the Brown family. Because of your generosity, we are adjusting our goal to $10,000. This money will go a long way toward making sure they don't have to take a financial hit during Jim's treatments. Jim and Regina both have expressed their gratitude. If you haven't already "liked" the Hold Fast for Jim Brown FB page, please go check it out. We will use that page to keep people in the loop as different needs arise.

Update #2

Those of us who decided to put this page together cannot begin to thank you all enough for your generous support of the Brown family. We met and surpassed our $5K goal in less than 36 hours. We had hoped to reach that amount in a month or two.

We will continue to keep this page up and active. In the meantime, we are in the process of linking it to Jim and Regina's accounts so they can have immediate access to the funds.

Thank you again for being such amazing people. #holdfast!
